We are saddened to report the death of Ian Chalk, who passed away peacefully in his sleep a few days ago, at the age of 89.
Many local residents will have met Ian through his community involvement, including his role as Chairman of the Parish Council back in the 1970s, as a member of a number of local masonic lodges, the Probus Club of Thame, and as Chairman and President of Haddenham Horticultural Society.
Given current restrictions, Ian's funeral will be a small, family-only service but it is hoped that a Service of Thanksgiving can be arranged at some point in the near future, to celebrate his life.
